Any chance when they put the VB in they missed the slot on the mod valve with the shifter arm?

How is your rear end set up? I had the same symptoms once. It turned out the person who set up my rear end cheaped out and used a mini spool. I sheared the pin in it and it wouldn't move under it's own power, but when the wheels were off the ground it still made enough contact to spin the tires in the right directions when going through the gears.

mini spool set up also,when tires were on the ground I tried to turn yoke thinking it was the same deal and could not turn the yoke. Which port do I use to check line pressure

check and see if the drive shaft turns when on the ground it take some pretty good pressure to turn a yoke to move a car

line pressure port is on the drivers side just in front of the band adjustment bolt - 1/8" pipe thread port

Like has been said check the rearend out good I agree sounds like the mini spool has gave up.I know when I was buying my parts to build my 9'' I was told to stay away from the mini spool.Even they guy I bought my axles and all my bearing told me not to run a mini spool if I was going to be drag racing.He said that they will not hold up from the abuse of the hard lauching from the starting line and I would more than likely wind up braking the pin.

THANKS GUYS for all your input , tires down put car in gear and watched the driveshaft go around.You don't know how much a relief it was to see that.After having the motor out already once this month the rearend will be a easy fix, already have all the parts to the puzzle take the center section to my cousin later this week and have him put it together for me and then off into the housing it goes should be driving by the weekend THANKS AGAIN:cheers I THINK I'll have a DRINK

I don't know how many passes you got out of your mini spool but I killed mine the first pass I made with it.

Several seasons but it was behind the 429 ,and about 5 races behind the 545, But NO more full spool going in and hopefully get thru the season with out anymore breakage. Also been shooting 125 shot of go juice so I guess I've been pretty lucky that's it lasted this long
